Coleal Arabian Horse Farm
Coleal Farm is located in Northern California about 25 miles southeast of Sacramento in the lovely rural town of Herald, which is comprised of extensive vineyards, rolling hills, complete with picturesque horse, sheep and cattle ranches.Coleal Farm started in 1964 and has been a family run operation ever since its inception. Today the farm is co-owned and run by Rhoda and Rhonda Coleal. Even though it is a small farm, producing no more than 4-6 foals a year, the influence of the Coleal breeding program is found and respected around the world. In 2012 at the Arabian Breeder's World Cup in Vegas, we were nominated as Breeders of Distinction. At the same event, the glorious Eden C (who was bred by Rhoda and Rhonda Coleal) was crowned the Arabian Breeders World Cup Senior Stallion champion, with the highest score of the show, adding to his other wins which are: 3 time US National Champion, Arabian Breeder's World Cup Jr. Champion Stallion, and Silver Champion at the All Nation's Cup in Aachen, Germany (Scoring the highest among the stallions with eleven 20's).
Our unique breeding program is based on SX Saladin, Bey Shah and Padron. SX Saladin (Serafix X Cobah), who was a National Champion himself, was the foundation stallion for the entire breeding program and every Coleal mare carries his blood line. SX Saldin was primarily a brood mare producer, and was on the leading sire list for having produced aristocrat mares (mareswit 4 or more champions as offspring). One of SX Saladin's sons, Cobrah, was exported to Brazil where he won Brazilian Reserve National Champion and went on to be a leading sire for 8 consecutive years. SX Saladin daughters were bred to Bey Shah, Padron and Fame VF. Those who were bred to Bey Shah produced many champions, but the most notable among them were: US National Champion Futurity Filly Liberty Bey C (who was out of Siri, an aristocrat daughter of SX Saladin) and Style SRA (out of Sociallite, another aristocrat daughter of SX Saladin). Style SRA was exported to Brazil where he became a leading sire for several years; while Liberty Bey C established a reputable line of champions. Breeding SX Saladin daughters to Padron resulted in two notable sisters:Passion, the dam of Genesis C, and Porcelyn, who was exported to Brazil and was later named Brazilian Jr. National Champion, and went on to produce two Brazilian National Champions. Another SX Saladin daughter, Dressed in Red, was bred to Fame VF and produced Fames Elagance C, who is the dam of the International Champion and sire of champions, Legacy of Fame.
Genesis C was the next step in our breeding program, and it became evident that he was a brood mare producer like his great grandsire SX Saladin. Among the most renowned of his progeny are the aristocrat mares Silken Sable (dam of International Champion Eden C), Genevieve C (dam of US National Reserve Futurity Champion and World Cup Senior Stallion Champion Arbituer), and TA JihanaBey (dam of two time US. National Champion and Canadian National Champion LuxemereJizette). Other Genesis C daughters worthy of mention are Gwendolyn C (full sister to Genevieve C) and Garbo C (dam of the exquisite ShahdAlhawajer who was Gold Champion Filly at the Ajman Show).
Eden C, the latest of the Coleal bred sires has shown that he has the ability to produce horses of great quality in both stallions and mares. Eden C has sired champions internationally, a few of whom are: US National Champion AAS Elishahh, Premira (Gold Champion Jr. Filly at the Polish Nationals), Beyond Eden (Gold Champion Jr. Filly at the Breeders Finals in Scottsdale, AZ), Royal Encantata (Gold Champion Jr. Yearling Filly at the Breeders World Cup in Vegas), and Gabriel BFA (Brazilian Reserve National Champion Jr. Colt). With breedings available to Eden C worldwide, our influence will continue to grow on the world stage.
The future looks bright and exciting forColeal Farm. We had in mind what we considered to be the ideal Arabian when we began our breeding program many years ago and we have come very close to this ideal. However we believe that close is not good enough and we will continue to raise the bar, chasing the vision of our perfect Arabian. The next generation, Ashlyn and Dane (Rhonda's children), are very enthusiastic and have become more heavily involved with the horses and so the Coleal legacy will go on.
